How do I market books that I've written?

It seems that many people don't like to read books in this era. People are more focused with social media, Movies, TV shows, and video games. How would I market my books to people who actually enjoy to read?

    To be honest book sales have been going up. People still like to read and now they have more ways to read.

    Check out promo venues like eBookDiscovery.com, eReaderNewsToday, BookBub and FussyLibrarian. I use them all the time. There are others, but these earn-out most often. eBookDiscovery and BookBub have the highest rate of return on investment.

    If you produce fiction books try wattpad. Serialize your stuff and use the first installation as a brand magnet to get a following going.

    You're asking the wrong question.

    The right question is "what problems do my books solve and where are the people who have these problems?".

    As far as reading is concerned, there are more people reading now than at any point in the history of humankind. Amazon made that happen.

    As others have said or inferred E-books have been making somewhat of a comeback in last 18 months probably with the proliferation of Kindle reading

    What type of book did you write? Would very many people be interested in the subject?

    Are these physical books? ebooks? amazong kindle books? etc?

    I think you may have answered your own question, if people are focused on social media, movies, tv shows and video games - advertise there. Maybe movies, tv shows and video games are out of the question, but social media shouldn't be. You should be able to find your audience on there and market to them.
